Miguel Rojas

Veteran Miguel Rojas is also most certainly on the chopping block after Hernández's signing, especially given Gavin Lux's return to ease the Dodgers' concerns about shortstop. Rojas played 121 games there in 2023, but only hit .236 and had to share the position a bit more toward the end of the season with Kiké Hernández, who the Dodgers reacquired via trade from the Red Sox to help at second and short. Hernández got the start over Rojas for the last game of the season, and Rojas' future with the major league team is dubious.

At 34, Rojas is also relatively old for his position and his production has been declining since the beginning of 2022. If he's DFA'ed by the Dodgers, he could be picked up by another team as the league hurts for shortstops on the free agent market, but he probably won't be a Dodger by Opening Day in March.
